  1. The kids looked like they were having a lot of fun,but, maybe if we stopped using all the land for houses and cutting the trees down maybe the wayer would have someplace to go instead of running into the street. Lets think about the run-off.

  2. Now that Lakewood is an asphalt and concrete land, with few green areas, the torrential rains have no where to go, so the storm drains flood, overfilled with overuse never intended for such an old system. So drivers should not be so silly to attempt to drive through high waters, just stay off the streets in these mini floods and let mother nature look for ways to drain the water,

  3. A child in monsey was killed by entering a puddle that contained a live wire after a storm. NEVER PLAY ON A FLOODED STREET. you cant know whats under the water.

  4. OH real smart let the kids play in the flithy water.So were are the parents????.Because tomorrows Asbury Park Press reads Jewish child drowns while playing in flooded streets.I see a lot on 4 and 5 year olds in that video.SMART REAL SMART

  5. Hey Stop NJAW!
    The reason for the extra flooding is that all the new sewer covers that were installed have smaller holes in them, so the trash in the street doesn’t go down the sewer. the result is the cover gets plugged up and the water can’t go down at all…. Smart planning.
